Do you know the county in which the divorce took place? This early divorce record may have been filed that county's office. Please look for the county clerk's office and contact them. You may have to send a written request.

About 1895 my great grandmother was divorced from my great grandfather...I cannot find any records anywhere pertaining to that. Are there any records still in existence? I find marriage records, but not divorce records. Can you help?

I've been working on finding the marriage certificate of my g-grandparents for several weeks. I became confused regarding Counties and Townships of Iowa. I've been going about this backwards. I think I have it straight in my head now.  G-grandmother name was Theodocia E. Kimberling Born July 1867 in Polk Township County of Marion, Iowa. her parent's names were Lawrence G. Kimberling and her mother's name was Elisabeth Kimberling nee Reynolds.  G-grandmother married Henry B. Johnson born September 1860 in Illinois. I'm hoping this information will aid me in locating their marriage certificate.
